 I signed up for the Dress Form Tag Swap over on the Cricut Message Board and my groups this month were "Television Show/Movie/Famous Person (real, animated, etc" , "Designers Choice" & "Halloween"

So my first tag is for the "famous person" category and I decided to go with "Laverne" from Laverne & Shirley and when I was researching her I came across an old episode of Happy Days where Laverne was wearing a Poodle skirt and dancing with Fonzie at the Diner. So this is my interpretation. For this tag I used the Tim Holtz sewing room die and an SVG file I found on the internet for the Poodle Skirt dress.

For my second tag...the "designers Choice" category I decided since all girls "Love to Shop!" I would make what I call my "Girls Just wanna have Fun!" tag. ha ha I found this awesome Glitter paper at Michaels in the black and the White w/black polka dots and I used the Sizzix Dress Form die on this one. This die comes with the little shoe and the smaller pkg.....but I happened to have another Sizzix die with similar pkgs I used to make the bigger box and I combined them to come up with this. For the white on the smaller box I used my Martha Stewart glitter.  The background paper I used on the tag is also Glittered and from the lost and Found this whole tag is very sparkly! And I am now covered from head to toe in Glitter! LOL!

For my Third Group, the "Halloween" category I decided to do a witch. For this one I once again used my Sizzix dress form die. The dress is made with my favorite black glitter paper and believe it or not the clear overlay for the skirt with the white spider webbing is from a pkg of MS treat bags I had leftover from last year. The belt is is orange glitter ribbon & the neckline I glittered myself with Course MS orange glitter to match. I hand cut the hat myself. Stamped the spider web on the corner of the tag and then applied stickles. The spider is from EK Success. SOOOOO SPOOKY! I love the way this one turned out! ha ha  

I hope all the ladies in my groups for this swap like all of my dress form tags when they receive them. If you are visiting my site and have never tried your hand at making these dress form tags, let me tell you they are a lot of fun. Give it a try.....they are super easy to make. Happy Crafting! 

I hope you enjoy this hop and we are sure to have another one planned in the near future. 
Please stop by all the blogs and leave comments.

Good luck to everyone and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
